An unfortunate late withdrawal due to the golfers bane, a bad back, left a slight imbalance of entries for El Plantio 2’s ‘Texas Scramble.’
Instead of an ideal 5 x 3 members, one team were at a disadvantage having to play with only 2 team members. After a late start due to frost on the course, the teams experienced ideal conditions. The competition winners took advantage of these, scoring a gross four under par with no bogeys and four birdies, which, I think, is a record low score for 3 players.
Nearest the pins: Hole 1 – Helen Beddows, Hole 4 – Rod Loveday.
Third place – H/C 5, Alistair Douglas, Benny Jorgensen, Allen Robinson – 49 shots.
Second place – H/C 5.2, John Wilby, Rod Loveday, Brian Edwards, 48.8 shots.
First place – H/C 5.5, Helen Beddows, Barry Walthall, David Swann – 45.5 shots.
